INTEGRATED NATIONAL AIRSPACE COMMUNICATION SYSTEM (INACS) FOR THE SUPPORT OF AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL OPERATIONS IN THE 1980S AND 1990S. SYSTEM CONCEPT
The document introduces the concept of an integrated communications approach to meet total FAA operational communications requirements projected for the 1980s and beyond. As a concept, this integrated approach differs from the historical method of satisfying FAA's communications needs by the acquisition or development of dedicated facilities and networks which are designed to serve specific categories of users and which perform specific and dedicated communications functions for these users. State-of-the art communications technology appropriately applied to an integrated system offers opportunities for a substantial reduction in projected total FAA communications recurring costs together with a significant improvement in overall communications operational capability, flexibility and reliability.
